At WoHIT, COCIR launched the 4th edition of its eHealth Toolkit, focusing on how leveraging modern data-driven approaches can improve healthcare quality in a cost-effective manner. The COCIR toolkit highlights Big Data’s societal value and the contribution of eHealth to personalised medicine. At the same time, a special section of this toolkit concentrates on Vendor Neutral Archiving, presenting innovative trends and solutions that can help healthcare providers share and access medical images and other patient related documents in a seamless way across departments, providers and networks. Considering that regulatory and legal trends can potentially affect the delivery and operation of integrated solutions, we have also decided to provide an updated overview of regulatory trends in medical software and on industry Data Protection recommendations.
COCIR is also taking part and will speak at the first EU summit on chronic diseases, together with key policymakers, stakeholders and interest groups. EU added value to future needs, future actions, and future policies in controlling the burden and preventing the expansion of the chronic diseases will be an important milestone. During this summit COCIR will articulate key elements leveraging the power of medical imaging and eHealth in the context of personalised medicine.
Next in our calendar is the COCIR Annual General Assembly, where we will host a timely forum on future trends and potential impact of medical device regulation on the healthcare ecosystem.
The highlights will be posted on this website shortly after the event.
